5 strong reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford could become a reality.

Cristiano has been linked with a return to his former club Manchester United, where his football stardom started.

Ronaldo joined Man United back in 2003 under Sir Alex Ferguson where he spent six seasons at Old Trafford, winning the Ballon d’Or, three Premier League titles, and the Champions League.

The Portuguese left Manchester United in 2009 snd joined Spanish giants Real Madrid where he continued to win trophies, before putting pen to paper with Juventus in 2018.

Recent reports from Italy hinted at possible Ronaldo re-uniting with Manchester United with the Red Devils reportedly made contact with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes over a sensational Old Trafford return.

As rumors continue to take shape, here are five reasons why the transfer could happen.

Champions League setback with Juventus.

Juventus signed Ronaldo with a view to winning the Champions League after their bid to win Europe’s most prestigious title failed in 2017.

The Old Lady reached the final in 2017 only to lose to Ronaldo’s Real Madrid.

Juventus felt that one special signing could make their dream come true, and Ronaldo was to be that man to lead Juventus to the European crown.

Despite Ronald’s undisputed quality, things haven’t worked out for Juventus or Ronaldo in his two seasons at the club

With Ronaldo, Juventus have managed only the last-16 in the past two seasons.

As a result, the Portuguese is said to be growing tired of the failings in Turin and is said to be looking for an exit route this summer.

5 strong reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford could become a reality.
Frustrated Ronaldo.

Manchester United can afford him.

Ronaldo’s transfer is not that huge based on the fact that the Portuguese is now 36 years old and has just one year left on his contract with Juventus.

The fact that his wages would be astronomical – a reported £520,000-a-week means only a few clubs who could afford him.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez recently responded to Ronaldo’s possibility of returning to Bernabeu for one last time and he responded:

“Cristiano Ronaldo will not come back to Real Madrid. It does not make sense, he has a contract with Juventus. I love him a lot, he has given us a lot.”

This leaves Ronaldo options limited and there are claims that Ronaldo would be willing to take a pay cut after United confirming that they may not have to break the bank.

Manchester desperate need of a consistent front-man.

Manchester United have some gifted strikers in Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, and Anthony Martial.

But the trio are still relatively young and have profited immensely from having the veteran head of Edinson Cavani in the Old Trafford dressing room this season.

The Uruguayan has showcased his perfection since he joined Old Trafford on a free from Paris Saint-Germain, with his movement in the box praised after every game.

Cavani has been linked with a move away from Manchester, and Should this happen, a huge void will be left in United’s attack, and Ronaldo would be the ideal candidate to fill it.

The European Super League apology.

Manchester United owners The Glazers agitated fans this week when it was declared that the club would be signing up for the European Super League.

The questionable decision was met with public resentment from fans, who demanded the Red Devils U-turn on their decision.

United finally surrendered to the pressure and 48 hours after it was announced their U-turn decision.

Joel Glazer then issued an apology to Man U supporters in response,
and it looks likely that the owners may feel that re-signing Ronaldo could go some way to making it up to the supporters.

Ronaldo’s love for United.

In 2014, Ronaldo revealed he couldn’t rule out returning to Old Trafford one day.

He said:
“Some players I am still in contact with because when I was there I created a good relationship with everybody, not just the players, all the staff around.

Sir Alex Ferguson, Cristiano Ronaldo

“And it was like my second family there too, so I’ll not forget that the people treat me well. I’ll not forget. I love Manchester, to be back, I never know, you never know.
“Of course I’m happy at Real Madrid, it’s my home, it’s my club but Manchester treats me unbelievable so we never know.”

In a different interview, he said:
“I love Manchester. Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart. The supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”

Yet on a different occasion when asked about a possible return, he said:
“Nothing is impossible.

And at some point, while playing, he approved United fans for not booing him, unlike Real Madrid’s fans.

“I don’t like it and it’s not normal that they whistle you in your own stadium. I just don’t like it,” said Ronaldo. “It’s not correct. And when you are on a difficult run that is when you need extra support from outside not less. Sometimes we don’t have it.

“I spent a lot of years at Manchester United and it never happened to me. Not even once. Maybe England is a case apart – the mentality is different.”
